A male minor has sex with an adult woman ( say his teacher ) and gets her pregnant ...Is he 'on the hook' for child support?

Update:

Apparently, in Kansas the courts ruled the statutory rape irrelevant and the child support is owed to the child of the rape. So men, you're screwed no matter what.

Update 2:

Can someone explain why mine and everybody elses comments were removed?

    Try to have fun with this one, since apparently there's a court case that answers this in that state.

    Yes, he is. The reason is that there are two innocent children involved: the male who's physically mature enough to sire a child and the baby. Between the two, which one is in the worse circumstances: the boy who sired the child and has the financial of adults or a state agency, or the baby who'll have no parents because the mother will be sent to prison for statutory rape?

    Regardless of age, when a person is half responsible for producing a child, that person has a duty to financially support that child to at least the age of 18.

    If it makes you feel any better, girls who are raped by men and become pregnant are often forced to carry and give birth to the rapist's baby. And the rapist has the right to visit the baby (and victim) and demand custody.

    So stop bitching. It's far worse for the mothers, physically, financially, and legally.

    It depends on his age and maturity and he circumstances. A judge could order that he knew what he was doing and although technically, he was raped, if, for example, he was 16 or 17 and came on to the woman and it only happened once, a judge might order him to pay it. On the other hand, for example, if an 11 or 13 year old boy was manipulated and similarly raped, a judge might not. The judge would more likely be inclined to remove the child from the care of the unfit rapist of a mother.

    The woman goes to prison.

    The baby goes to foster care.

    The boy turns 17, the foster care system can get child support from the father of the child has not been adopted.

    Technically no, because he's a minor. SHE is likely to face pedophilia charges.
